I went with a friend around started climbing around 11 AM. (you should start as early as possible 11 was late). There are different type of paths on the way. It starts with paved road then stoned steps and just rocks. There are refreshments available on the way you can buy. Don't carry too much water or drinks. After finish... More

My visit to the Wutong mountain was on a rainy day somewhere in the middle of the week which means no other visitors. A rare opportunity to be one-on-one with nature in this area.The way up is pretty long, about 3 hours, closer to the top there are steps those seem to be endless. A good exercise though. The view...

深圳第一高峰,900多米的高度,自然环境优美,是户外爬山锻炼跟远离城市喧嚣的好去处。 上山时部分路段有台阶和盘山公路2个选择。 对于体力较好, 想要另辟蹊径的旅客,沿着山涧的石头台阶是不错的选择,相对幽静,风景不错。 对于纯粹需要徒步的旅客, 盘山公路会好一些, 因为可以根据实际情况调整速度, 方便随时休息。 整理来说,运动强度有点大, 正常速度,上到山顶3-4小时,下山2-3 个小时。 由于路途较长,建议提前备好部分实物跟饮水。 如有可能,避开周末跟节假日是最好的,因为这些时候人相对比较多。

The walk was challenging but the most challenging aspect was getting there. Having GPS and Google (Inc. translate and maps) blocked on our phones meant finding a travel route to Wutong Shan Village was difficult. There is no MTR station nearby so I recommend you catch the 211 bus from (near!!) Luohu MTR. To get to the bus stop you... More

On the way up Wutong Mountain, just past the dam and lake, you will find a cool respite from the scorching sun. The river is beautiful and has numerous swimming pools and waterfalls. Great scenery and the river is very refreshing. Highly recommended ! 😃

So, Wutong Mountain has some good numbers and rankings as an Shenzhen attraction. I went on July 18, a nice, a-typical day for Shenzhen because it happened to be a little cooler that day. The Good: Once you reach the top of the mountain, the views are simply beautiful. Being in the city all of the time, you don't really... More

Honestly the scenery is breath taking ! But come prepared with a change of clothes and really good hiking shoes! They do sell water throughout the mountain. Plan for a whole day because it takes about 4 hours to walk up ! Amazing experience !

Go early (if mean 7am) if you want to beat the crowds. This is not the mountain to find peace on top - you will never be alone on top - always crowds. Done the hike up the valley from the main entrance few times - push yourself / run and it is great! Don't go down Yantian side (it... More

Definitely the best hike in SZ. Plan for a full day and bring plenty of snacks and water. I would recommend hiking in the cooler months and avoid the heat of the summer since it becomes oppressive once you get above the tree line. The view from the peak is very impressive since you get the full 360 view of... More
